Hollywood conservative and tea party activist Victoria Jackson is taking heat on Twitter for her Election Day posts claiming “America died” because President Barack Obama was re-elected.
Jackson, a 53-year-old former “Saturday Night Live” cast member, has drawn the ire of millions of Twitter users for her inflammatory posts.
Controversy surrounding Jackson, who has her own radio show, heated up Wednesday when she opined about Tuesday’s election.
“I can't stop crying. America died,” Jackson wrote on her Twitter account, where she has more than 6,100 followers.
She also shared a photo of a “RIP America” tombstone posted by the Facebook group I Will Not Live In The U.S.A. Under Dictator Obama.
The photo’s caption lists America’s date of death as Nov. 6, 2012, and “Barack Hussein Obama” as the cause of death.
Jackson blamed Obama’s victory over poor turnout from her fellow Christians.
“The Democrat Party voted God out and replaced Him with Romans 1. In the Good vs. Evil battle...today...Evil won,” the “SNL” alum wrote. “Thanks a lot Christians, for not showing up. You disgust me.”
Some political observers likened Jackson’s rant to Donald Trump's recent online rant, which called for revolution and a march on Washington, D.C., after Obama won. Trump later deleted the controversial tweets.
Jackson’s tweets were mocked by snarky Twitter users.
“Right now Ann Coulter and Victoria Jackson are hanging out, sitting around in their sweatpants, crying and eating babies.#WhatMonstersDo,” wrote Twitter user Jillian Bell. The popular tweet was retweeted more than 600 times.
“Victoria Jackson and Donald Trump should get married, run away together and go live in harmony on delusional, divisive f------- island,” opined Larry Salz.
“I wish Victoria Jackson was this funny when she was on SNL,” said Drew Holmes.
